Ah, A Ginger Bread Man Card!

I chose to do a simple card for the Christmas at Home theme…. what says Christmas at home better than the smell of cookies and gingerbread men???

I made this card by diving into my scrap and salvage box (I save all sorts of card fronts, ribbon etc off of gifts from previous years). I chose this delightful gingerbread man ribbon, an embossed glossy beige and a rich brown cardstock. The sentiment is from a Christmas digital stamp from BrossArtfull Designs, I found it at their Etsy shop. I simply chose the phrase I wanted, print and cut it out to glue on the card.  Sometimes it is just easier and more time efficient to buy something like that Smile

The card is 3 1/2 inches by 5 1/4 inches, top fold.  The ribbon was a wire edged one, so to make it easier to glue to the card, I just cut it to size and then removed the wire.

Hope you like it!
